"I have to tell, Principal Mrs. Nelson was so excited to say that her staff team that participated in training had just conducted an afternoon of games for their students. It was an amazing success! She said the children loved it!"

Collaboration is in our nature
Every Playworks partnership is customized to meet our partners’ specific goals.
“At Mattel, we believe in the power of play and the critical link between play and the healthy development and learning of children. With Playworks as a partner, we can directly and immediately translate that vision into direct impact with thousands of children each year.”
—Diedre Lind, Executive Director, Mattel Children’s Foundation
Back-to-School Signals Time to Think about Recess
With the new school year upon us, Playworks is urging families to add an important task to their already-full plate: reviewing the state of recess at their child’s school.
Playworks is grateful to our partners, who share our belief that every child deserves a place on their school playground. Learn how partnering with Playworks can create opportunities that help kids find their place in the world through play.
